The Revelation

(Category 16 of 16)

 
Does God care about all of the evil humans perpetrate in our world, and if so, what is He doing about it? In this video we trace the different ways that God confronts human evil and the even deeper spiritual evil that underlies it. Ultimately, we see how Jesus fulfills this storyline and overcomes evil by allowing it to defeat him.

The Throne Room of Heaven

4

1 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing aopen in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a btrumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
2 Immediately aI was in the Spirit; and behold, ba throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
3 1And He who sat there was alike a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; band there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
4 aAround the throne were twentyfour thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, bclothed in white 1robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
5 And from the throne proceeded alightnings, 1thunderings, and voices. bSeven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are cthe2 seven Spirits of God.
6 Before the throne there 1was aa sea of glass, like crystal. bAnd in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.
7 aThe first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.
8 The four living creatures, each having asix wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:

b“Holy,1 holy, holy, cLord God Almighty, dWho was and is and is to come!”

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, awho lives forever and ever,
10 athe twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:

11 “Youa are worthy,
1O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; bFor You created all things, And by cYour will they 2exist and were created.”

The Lamb Takes the Scroll

1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne aa scroll written inside and on the back, bsealed with seven seals.
2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, a“Who

is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”
3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open 1and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, athe Lion of the tribe of bJudah, cthe Root of David, has dprevailed to open the scroll eand 1to loose its seven seals.”
6 And I looked, 1and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood aa Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and bseven eyes, which are cthe seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand aof Him who sat on the throne.

Worthy Is the Lamb

8 Now when He had taken the scroll, athe four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the bprayers of the saints.
9 And athey sang a new song, saying:

b“You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And chave redeemed us to God dby Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made 1us akings2 and bpriests to our God; And 3we shall reign on the earth.”

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,
12 saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the aLamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

13 And aevery creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying:

b“Blessing and honor and glory and power

REVELATION 5:14

Be to Him cwho sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and 1ever!”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the 1twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped 2Him who lives forever and ever.

First Seal: The Conqueror

6

1 Now aI saw when the Lamb opened one of the 1seals; and I heard bone of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.”
2 And I looked, and behold, aa white horse. bHe who sat on it had a bow; cand a crown was given to him, and he went out dconquering and to conquer.

Second Seal: Conflict on Earth

3 When He opened the second seal, aI heard the second living creature saying, “Come 1and see.”
4 aAnother horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to btake peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.

Third Seal: Scarcity on Earth

5 When He opened the third seal, aI heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, ba black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of cscales1 in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A 1quart of wheat for a 2denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and ado not harm the oil and the wine.”

Fourth Seal: Widespread Death on Earth

7 When He opened the fourth seal, aI heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.”
8 aSo I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And 1power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, bto kill with sword, with hunger, with death, cand by the beasts of the earth.

Fifth Seal: The Cry of the Martyrs

9 When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under athe altar bthe souls of those who had been slain cfor the word of God and for dthe testimony which they held.
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, a“How long, O Lord, bholy and true, cuntil You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances

12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, aand 1behold, there was a great earthquake; and bthe sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the 2moon became like blood.
13 aAnd the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
14 aThen the sky 1receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and bevery mountain and island was moved out of its place.
15 And the akings of the earth, the great men, 1the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, bhid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
16 aand said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who bsits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
17 “For the great day of His wrath has come, aand who is able to stand?”

PSALM 41

The Blessing and Suffering of the Godly

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1 BLESSED is he who considers the 1poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; aYou will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will 1sustain him on his sickbed.

4 I said, “LORD, be merciful to me; aHeal my soul, for I have sinned against You.”
5 My enemies speak evil of me: “When will he die, and his name perish?”
6 And if he comes to see me, he speaks 1lies; His heart gathers iniquity to itself; When he goes out, he tells it.
